The Empire of imperial Brits is announcing the construction of a vessel with the aid from an ally (name will remain secret) of weappon that is capable of eliminating matter from time.

The Weapon creates a temporal incursion which erases the particular piece of matter and all ajoining matter.

Specifications are Top Secret.

Construction whereabouts Top Secret

Time to completion 8 ns years.

All specifications will be given upon the weapons construction.

The Empire Is offering a contract for a steady supply of Naquadria for some current projects.

I'm not even going to begin to cover the enormous amount of paradoxes and temporal loops such a wepaon would create, suffice to say that if you actually used it on anyone, they would no longer exist, so you would never have needed to use it on them, and may be never build the weapon in the first place.
We strongly advise that if such a weapon is not only possible but plausible, then the creators of sucha weapon used it on themselves and see what kinda of temporal rift that creates.
excuse me, i have to go lie down from thinking too much about confusing paradoxes............. :o

I agree the weapon can and will affect the timeline when it is fired. However at present our scientists are designing a programme to see how the weapon will be most bennificial for us.

The weapon and the ship itself stays outside of the effects of the weapon as they are not in pahse with the current tempral frequency.

However the only way to insure that there will be no effects from the weapon is to insure that the field from the tempal core is at the same frequency and it encompasses the entire ship.

Tempral mechanics are new and no one knows for sure how this weapon will work.

I just had better be bennaffical for the Empire.

if it erases the particular piece of matter and all ajoining matter wont that in in turn erase the Universe as all matter is contected in one way or another

I'll try to ignore that mass of typoes and get straight to the point. You mentioned that
'a tempral incursion which erases the particular piece of matter and all ajoining matter. '
That would make this weapon useless for anything except taking out planets(big nono), as it would take out that first bit, then the next, then the next, etc.

Speaking of typos, it's "Temporal", not "tempral". Sorry.

DGNT will act to remove a nation seeking to use this from its own timeline.

Dont even try it.

The nation of Indra Prime must forward a statement to the nation of Imperial Brits. Cease your research into temporal technology. Indra Prime is the leader in Temporal Research second to none. We have spend more than 500 years perfecting this technology but not without considerable losses. Any tests you run will ultimately lead to the loss of your population due to unforseen accidents. Also any device that is capable of removing an object from the past, present and future (most importantly the past) should not exist in the hands of a nation ill equipped to handle the reprocussions of that technology. We demand that you cease all research and development of this weapon or be prepared to lose it forcefully.

Any removal of an object from the Past is something that is incredibly dangerous and foolish. Due to the temporal causality of temporal paradox it has the possibility to destroy entire civilizations in one false move. We cannot allow this to happen. We have spent our entire lifetime preventing this exact thing from happening. Granted we have Temporal Weapons but they are no where near the threat of a device that will erase objects from the past. again we urge you to cease all research or be prepared to face an armada before the week is out.

First off, you know this will be considered god moding. Second, its been deemed that you cant destroy molecules, you can only move them... so you are going to do something deemed impossible, being a small nation as you are?

Tyrandis's scientific community has determined that such a weapon is impossible by any standard. Although you could force a target to be caught in an infinite time loop, it is impossible to move something out of the spacetime continuum because that would result in shifting a completely new dimension for the target to exist. We would also like to say that whatever crackpot came up with this idea is an idiot, and recommends immediate arrest and execution.

Yours derisively,
Dr. Rand Warner, Director of the Ministry of Science

We ask that all nations against this creation of the so called temporal incursion weapon stnad behind us, in preventing this technology from falling into the wrong hands, specifically a nation as young as Imperial Brits. We have used our technology for more than 500 years and have gained a working knowledge of temporal research and that nations should warned away from this technology. If the nation of Imperial Brits does not back down, we will send an armada, with the Indra Prime flagship Phaeralon at its head to prevent any temporal incursions that could unravel the space/time continuum.

iam only trying to get an rp going. and Tyrandis it does exist. The weapon well is unstable and its effects are highly unpredictable.

No one knows for sure how a weapon such as this would work. Iam going to find out.

After all.

7 years to completion.

We invite all empires to attend the weapons first test. We intend to erase an asteroid.

All nations are welcome to attend the testing of this weapon. Any nations that are interested in attending please proceed to my homeworld where you will be accomadated and escorted to the testing site.

Interesting idea, we saw another nation, Xanthal, try a weapon similar. He almost destroyed the universe by destabilizing the balance of four dimentions we live in. It was a different process. He wanted to stop all time in a given area. Yours... how would it erase the object? Would it just remove it from our timeline and kick it to another, alternate one?

Due to the instability of this weapon we remind you that if you do NOT cease you WILL be assuredly be seeing an armada in less than a week.

we no longer have control of the weapon Imperial Brits is in a state of civil war.

we no longer have control of the weapon Imperial Brits is in a state of civil war."That's grounds for ortillery strikes, isn't it?"

"According to regulations, yes it is sir."

"Then put a fleet over them."

"Yes sir."
